For the past 3 years, I have been extremely drawn to England, particularly the Surrey area. I'll even look at pictures and webcams of that area, and feel such a sense of homesickness when I do. I feel more connected to England than I do the U.S. Where I currently live. It's almost as if I belong there, not here. If I could afford to go visit, I would in a heartbeat. The feelings I get when I look at the cams or pics are unbelievable. I feel sadness, homesickness, yearning, love, etc. I just want to be able to understand why this is happening and why it hasn't left me.
I get all of these "signs" that seem to be pointing me there, but I just can't afford to go. So, I feel lost. The signs come from anywhere, really. Television, online, in movies, and about a year ago I connected with an old friend on Facebook, who just happens to live in England now.
This really all started, and please don't laugh at me when I write this, in 2008 after watching the movie Becoming Jane, which is about Jane Austen. I never had heard of the movie but one morning I turned on my television, and it was on HBO. So, I watched it and that is when the "feeling" began. It was really intense, and it hasn't left. Maybe it doesn't mean anything. Or maybe it does. I don't know.
Does anybody else experience something like this?
